Spoiler alert: this article contains spoilers for the Season 4 finale of Mayans M.C.
The Season 4 finale of Mayans M.C. captures Coco's (Richard Cabral) funeral. Isaac (JR Bourne), his older brother, Les Packer (Robert Patrick), and Tig (Kim Coates) make their unexpected return. But not everyone enjoys prolonged screen time. Jay-Jay (Greg Serano) and Manny (Manny Montana) meet their tragic fates. So, what will happen in Season 5 of Mayans M.C.? Has FX greenlit Season 5 yet?
Season 4 of 'Mayans M.C.' concluded on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. Will there be a Season 5?
Created by Elgin James and Kurt Sutter, Mayans M.C. has achieved a cultic status among Sons of Anarchy fans and far beyond. As a spin-off, the cast of Mayans M.C. brings together old favorites and new faces. Nothing exemplifies this better than the Season 4 finale, which revives old Sons of Anarchy characters like Tig (Kim Coates) and Les Packer (Robert Patrick). Will they stick around for Season 5?
During San Diego Comic-Con, FX announced the season 5 renewal for Mayans M.C. Nick Grad, President of Originals at the network shared, "The Mayans have battled for respect, territory, and power through four intense seasons that have set the stage for an explosive fifth season that will test their very survival under ‘EZ’s’ newly claimed leadership," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Will Season 5 of 'Mayans M.C.' explore Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes's speedy unraveling?
EZ appears to have made up his mind and switched to Satan in Season 4 of Mayans M.C., after killing his love interest, Gaby (Sulem Calderon). EZ's brother, Angel, (Clayton Cardenas), was the one to grapple with the atrocity, while EZ discovered that cold-blooded murder doesn't weigh that much on his conscience. As Elgin James, the co-creator of Mayans M.C. told Deadline, EZ was predestined to undergo unfortunate life experiences — and his reactions have started to change in Season 4.
"While creating these characters, Kurt [Sutter] and I talked about how EZ had this path out, and was going to go to Stanford, but that was never going to happen," Elgin said. "The universe was going to spit him out back where he belongs — that was always going to be his fate. For three seasons he wasn’t sure if he was in or out, but now he’s all in. He’s making the wrong decisions, but he’s handling it in the same way he did with his dog when he was little, where he did what no one else could."
At this stage, it's still uncertain what the show will do with EZ in Season 5 of Mayans M.C.
